Ghost in a Jar

Friday 1st November 2013

This afternoon we received a hand-written letter from one Chris Gallagher. A powerful letter full of abstract thinking and bold ideas.

His thorough blueprint for a new and groundbreaking product was all there in black and white  – 'Ghost in a Jar.'

The plan was simple: source some 29p jam jars, empty out the jam (to be recycled into a new bloodsport known as Jamball), find a ghost (from one of our country's many fine ghost walks), stuff 'em in, close the jar and smother it in holy water to seal in the apparition.

Well we did it Chris Gallagher. We did it for you.

It's ALLLLLLIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVE!!!

Apologies for the gruesome picture, it's truly nothing but delicious strawberry jam.

For our rough and ready prototype we chose a slightly more luxurious jar of preserves but it worked all the same. Thankfully our offices are but moments from a cracking Jack the Ripper tour so we nabbed a ghost, coaxed 'em in, splash of holy water, done.

BEHOLD.
